So my starting weight WASN'T what I thought it was! It was nearly 20 pounds more! But it's's ok...we're fixing that riiiiiiight now...

After hearing countless little kids get in trouble for saying "oooh...that's a faaat lady!" and then my own daughter (age 10) deciding SHE wanted to be healthy and actually SEEING my weight (oh and hearing it too...the dang scale TALKS!) I finally was able to get a SPARK lit under my butt to get started on getting healthy. None of my pictures here look like me! Well they do, but seeing how much slimmer I WAS I could kick myself...but I won't. This is a journey! Journey! HEALTHY LIVING IS A JOURNEY! So...I'm going to keep going and going and going...

So...whatever encouragement you've got...THROW IT ON ME! I'm needing it. So here we go!

Member Since: 6/4/2008

Fitness Minutes: 5,825

My Goals:
Drink my 64 ounces of water EVERY DAY!

Track my food EVERY DAY! (no matter what I eat....)

Get Active - 30 minutes of cardio AT LEAST 3 times a week.

That's it for now. Baby Steps is what I've got to do!

My Program:
Doing an Atkins-ish, South Beach-ish eating plan in that I'm limiting the refined carbohydrates I eat (bread, cake, cookies, pie...candy...that stuff...) because I tend to over do it. Moderation on those things doesn't work for me. So, after I put in some work and get down some, we'll see what happens, but for now, I have to restrict those things. I also plan to increase my vegetable intake so that I can be a good model for my daughter.

Personal Information:
I am from Albany, GA. Currently I live in Villa Rica, GA. Just moved here at the beginning of the year, so I've got new everything going on it seems!

I'm always gonna wanna make it move.
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose.
Ain't about how fast I get there.

Ain't coming through" - Joss Stone
